Three members of the Canisius College swimming and diving team were honored as MAAC performers of the week, the conference announced on Wednesday.

Junior divers Eddie Quarantillo and Taylor Epstein were tabbed as MAAC Divers of the Week, and sophomore Clare Battaglia earned MAAC Women’s Swimmer of the Week honors.

After breaking a record that stood for 18-years in the 1-meter dive on Oct. 26, it took just one week for Quarantillo to up his mark. Quarantillo scored a 316.60 in the 1-meter dive in a first-place finish during the Griffs’ dual meet against Geneseo on Saturday. Quarantillo followed that performance with a 342.07 in the 3-meter dive, which shattered his own school-record by 41 points. Quarantillo has now qualified for the NCAA Zone Regionals on both boards. He’s the first person in program history to do so.

Battaglia raced her way to three victories – two individual, one relay – in the Griffs’ 144-99 victory over Geneseo on Saturday. Battaglia took first in the 200-yard IM with a time of 2:15.29. She then earned her second individual victory of the meet in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 1:01.42. Battaglia also swam the first leg of the Griffs’ 200-medley relay that finished first (1:52.58) to kick off the meet.

Epstein finished in second place on the 3-meter board at Geneseo with a score of 238.35. She finished in third place on the 1-meter board with a score of 232.30.

Quarantillo, Battaglia, Epstein and the Griffs will return to the pool Saturday, Nov. 16 at St. Bonaventure. The meet is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
